(40) As God overthrew Sodom . . .--The whole verse is reproduced from Jeremiah 49:18. We enter here, indeed, upon a mosaic of quotations, or at least recollections of other prophecies. Thus Jeremiah 50:41-43 are taken from Jeremiah 6:22-24, "Babylon" being substituted for "Zion," and "the king of Babylon" for "we;" Jeremiah 50:44-46 from Jeremiah 49:19-21, with the necessary substitutions of "Babylon" for "Edom," the Chaldeans" for "Teman," "among the nations" for "in the Red sea." The reader is referred accordingly to the Notes on those passages. The reproduction in identical terms is probably connected with the thoughts of the retribution, on which the prophet dwells in Jeremiah 50:15. All that she had done Babylon was now to suffer.

Verse 40. - A verbal copy of Jeremiah 49:18.
